Overview

Thousands of developers have used the first edition of Rails Recipes to solve problems known to stop even experienced programmers in their tracks. Now, five years later with Rails 3.1 released, it's time for a new edition of this tested collection of solutions, completely revised by Rails master Chad Fowler.

Written for novice to intermediate Rails developers, Rails Recipes: Rails 3 Edition is packed with solutions to 70 of the most vexing problems you're likely to face on the job. From building custom forms and powering pages with JQuery to integrating with legacy databases, it's all here. Each recipe has been updated to reflect the latest features of Rails 3.1 and each lays out a distinctive solution to a problem you may be facing today or could well encounter tomorrow. In addition, you'll find half the book is stocked with new eye-opening solutions to such common problems as how to extend Rails, test and deploy your sites, or add a web service to your actions. And each recipe not only lays out a succinct solution, but explains its rationale and the technologies that make it work.

Loaded with the insights of a Rails community leader, members of the Rails core team and other experts, this is the book you'll want to have at your side as you craft your next project.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Rails Recipes has always been the definitive guide for aspiring Rails developers. It doesn’t just cover how you could build something, but delves into the details and explains all the reasons why you should build it that way. You can be sure that if you follow the tips and tricks in this book, you’re on the right path."

—Michael Koziarski, Software developer, Rails Core team member, and partner, Southgate Labs

Rails Recipes is a great resource for any Rails programmer. The book is full of hidden gems (no pun intended) that many programmers may not discover in their daily quest to get the job done.

—Gary Sherman, Principal of GeoApt, LLC; chair of QGIS PSC; and author of "The Geospatial Desktop"
